Post Why do teams feel the need to run on 1st down?
This has always bugged me. Miami did it a lot today, and it seemed like it always put us in 2nd and 3rd and long. Why not pass first and then let the Rush supplement it? We know Tannehill is a pass first qb. It's like watching, Pittsburgh last week and this week have three opening runs on the first drive and it's a drive killer both times. If we have AD I wouldn't mind it but, we don't. I'm not trying to be picky here, we are 3-0. 3-0 enough where we can start nit-picking the play. Just a question.
:grin:

You have to play the way your players fit in the scheme of things, and opening up the game with three rushes, when you have Wallace, Hartline, Clay, and Gibson as your playmakers, doesn't make sense. Why not try a end around, or pass to set up the rush. I know this sounds like being picky, but at NO we are going to have to start fast and rushing is not where our best players are. Just saying. Thanks.
